The pedestrian pathway is becoming very obstructed in several sections by overhanging hedges, shrubs and bushes. one section in particular just before Gordon way junction, and further along Station Lane near the Buttercross Lane junction. This is a busy path and cycle path, and in some parts pedestrians are forced to step across to the cycle path.

  • I see this was reported 30.09. Update as of 09.10. See attached photos. The pedestrian part of path is unusable due to obstruction. For cyclists the tree branches are at head height and lower in wet weather causing a danger especially in low light conditions.
